A week has passed since I came to Colombia.
I feel like that three weeks passed since I came. At the same time I feel like I have only been a week, I feel I’m getting used to be in this life here as well. Although my Spanish is still poor.
From Monday to Thursday, I work full-time from about 7am to 4pm. On Friday, the school finishes at 1pm. On Tuesday and Wednesday, I have classes by myself all day.
Until today, I had classes only older ages between 10 to 15 years old. But today, I could be in Kindergarden class for 2 hours for the first time.
First of all, I couldn’t understand Spanish terribly and I didn’t understand well what the teachers were saying and honestly I think I wasn’t helpful for them at all. I think I was a kind of a extra big baggage which is like an outsider Asian guy who doesn’t speak Spanish for teachers. I almost feel sorry for them.
But about ages 4, they prefer just talking what they want to talk than asking specific questions. So kids didn’t seem to care about my poor Spanish skill and they appeared to like me, they were hanging me and talking to me a lot. I played tag game, hide and seek and so on with them for almost an hour. I could feel again children are pure and so cute even I am in the outback of Colombia.
Some of the girls seemed to like me so much, and they were cling my legs, arms and my head too.
I truly feel I get better my Spanish quickly and want to understand what they are talking to me. So it’s gonna be much much more fun.
That was so fun and truly happy time to play with them.
